As the nights get darker, and the weather colder, it’s easy to get into hibernation mode. That means staying in more and curling up with a good book or TV program. It’s also means getting to bed earlier and waking up later. So you end up spending way more time in your bedroom. With that being these case, you will want your bedroom to be comfy, warm and relaxing. Remember everyone can benefit from a comfy bedroom. Whether you have just moved into your first home or you, have lived where you are for years. So, read on to find out what you should be doing to improve it.
Bed linen is one of the most important aspects of making the room warmer. Just as you would pick a light and airy linen for the summer, you want to pick a heavier more luxurious fabric for the winter such as diamond jacquard.
Add in rich, luxurious fabrics for the scatter cushions and throws, in warm or jewel-like colours. Then you will have a warm and comfortable bed that will definitely be hard to tear yourself away from, every time the sun comes up.
It’s funny but one of the thing that some people often don’t want to be warm, not matter what the weather is their pillows. There is nothing nicer than turning that pillow over in the morning to have the cool side pressing against your face. Even though the rest of you is toasty warm!
But now you don’t even have to turn the pillow over as there are special one designed to keep cool no matter how hot the room is.
This means it’s even easy to go back to sleep and reward yourself with that well-deserved lie in at the weekend.
Carpets and Rugs
One of the worst things, when you get out of a cosy warm cocoon of bed in the morning, is having to put your poor feet down on a cold floor. It is horrible. That is why if you don’t have carpets or rugs in the room, you may want to consider changing that.
Laying carpet is a bigger job that just getting a rug and needs to be considered carefully. You need to out down underlay, so the carpet retains its bounce. This is the best way of getting a warm fluffy treat for your feet in the mornings. You should also think carefully about the colour, and how it will affect the feel of the room.
If you don’t want to go the whole hog, you can get a rug for the bedroom instead. This will warm up the area next to your bed that your feet touch when you first get out, and it’s easy to move about and clean when necessary.
Curtains and Windows
To make a cold bedroom warmer, it’s important that you look at the windows. Double glazed are best as they retain heat better so it will cost less to heat the room. If you are concerned that heat is escaping through your windows, but you can’t afford to replace them then invest in thick curtains instead. Then you will create a barrier between the room and the window and hopeful trap in or of the hot air.
Lined curtain made from a thick heavy fabric are best for this job. You can even get thermal curtains designed especially for this purpose.
